Welcome to Year 2, all the information you need is detailed here.
The Year 2 Teachers are Mr Morrison (Butterflies), Miss Manaher (Butterflies) and Mrs Bansal (Dragonflies).
All children will be allocated a peg to hang their coat, book bag and PE kit on. Children should bring their planners and reading book into school every day.
The School Day
The KS1 gates open at 8.40am for registration and close at 8 50am with registration taken by 8 55. Children enter school at the Reception and KS1 gate. Playtime is 10.05am to 10.15am and lunch is from 12.10pm to 1.00pm. School finishes at 3.20pm, with gates opening at 3 15 for you to collect your child from their classroom. English, Maths and Phonics will continue to be taught daily. Other curriculum areas will be taught throughout the week such as Science, History, Geography Music, French and RE. PE will be taught twice a week and children attend Forest School as a class on alternate weeks. The children are able to attend school in their PE kit on PE school days.
Children are expected to read at home 3 times a week as well as practising their number bonds and spellings - these can be found at the back of pupil planners. There are optional creative challenges which children will be set dependent on the current learning.
Please contact the main office if you wish to provide us with any information, have questions or are having any issues accessing ParentMail. Your child' class teacher is your first point of contact therefore the office will forward any communication to them should you require any class specific information or discussion.
Please ensure the collect your child from school form is up-to-date. Additional copies of this form are held in the main office.
How you can help at home
- Encourage and read with your child, and talk about what they have read. This will help their reading speed, understanding and their writing ability. There is further information in the pupil planner to support you with this.
- Support your child with their home learning and complete their 'what have I enjoyed this week/what have I found hard' section in their weekly planner.
- Discuss the knowledge organisers with your child.
